ADVANTAGES

  • Network choice: You get to choose between the two networks. They are Vodafone and Telstra. Very few MVNOs give this benefit.
  • No long-term commitment: Apart from the 12-month Pay as you go Red plan, all the other plans operate on a month by month basis.

DISADVANTAGES

  • Blue plans compare badly: Blue plans offer you very less data quota as compared to the red plans.
